The Ultimate PS3 Media Streaming Solution Is Here

The Past

Ever since DLNA support was added to the PLAYSTATION 3 in firmware 1.80, I have been streaming all sorts of media to my living room and HDTV in a configuration similar to this:

Pre FW 2.10

Early on, I transcoded my Top Gear and American Dad episodes from my PC via TVersity since a majority of my content was encoded in DivX/XviD format (incompatible with the PS3 at the time). While the solution worked, it had some inconvenient setbacks:

  • Computer(s) must be on in order to view/access all media.
  • Image quality suffered due to transcoding.
  • TVersity service needed to be restarted in order to become visible to the PS3.

posted in: Game News 0

In this episode, Keighley, Croal, Pachter and Satterfield talk Microsoft and all the buzz which surrounded them this past year. Some wacky insights by Pachter as always, but his comment about the possibility of Mass Effect coming to PS3 is putting my initial plan of purchasing Mass Effect on Boxing Day into question.

Shadow of the Colossus ‘Wanderer on the Offensive (Live Edit) Song

posted in: Game News 0

Dedicating an entire entry to a song? Yes, but not just any song either, an OCRemix song. As a big fan of both the VG remixes and VG music in general, this latest entry from the OCRemix has all the ingredients of an awesome track. Here is a quote from djpretzel’s post:

 “WHOA! Viola + rock = win. I love everything about this mix. Wonderfully mixed, wonderfully performed, and the arrangement just takes two great songs and integrates them seamlessly.”

On the fourth listen through right now and it is nothing, but pure awesome. In the words of my colleague from work: “This song is sick!”

Download it from OCRemix.

Steam Now Supports Gift Purchases

posted in: Game News 0

A Steam update was just released with one noticeable and festive feature: gift purchases. It is an excellent method of gift giving for that PC gamer on your list. If you are wondering how it all works check out the Steam FAQ.

Some folks may recall that Steam supported gift giving for only Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One earlier this year, but now the feature supports all games available at the Steam Store.

Give the gift of Orange Box.

P.S – Feel free to give me something as well.
